Joanique’s Maskara Collection Inspired by the Festival of Smiles

Philippine-based fashion accessories brand Joanique embodies the festive Filipino spirit with a Spring/Summer 2016 collection inspired by Bacolod’s colorful Maskara Festival.

The eye-catching clutches shaped like lively, smiling masks recently lit up Manila FAME. They were also just exhibited at the prestigious global fashion and accessories trade shows Super Pitti Immagine in Milan and Premiere Classe in Paris. 

Each hand carved and hand painted wooden minaudiere takes an entire month to produce. It’s a statement piece that will double as art when you’re not carrying it with you – this is a purse you won’t want to put away.

For jewelry lovers, the collection also features rings, bracelet charms, necklaces and earrings in festival mask shapes forged in premium materials.

Joanique’s self-taught jewelry designer Malou Araneta Romero believes that the indelible imprints in our hands have innumerable stories to tell, which is why the brand’s tagline is “Let our hands tell the story.” With Joanique’s handcrafted accessories that reflect Filipino identity and culture, yours will speak volumes.
